Order It: Sonnet 29

The Lark’s Nest in the Corn. Aesop’s fables with his life: in English, French, & Latin. 1666.

Shakespeare’s Sonnet 29, which begins “When in disgrace with fortune and men’s eyes,” traces the poet’s journey from despair and solitude to joy when he thinks of his friend’s love, making him like a “lark at break of day.”
